DHL Global Forwarding, the freight specialist arm of Deutsche Post DHL Group, held a groundbreaking ceremony today for its new 4,880 square meter facility in Brisbane Airport. DHL Global Forwarding is investing 17 million AUD (11 million EUR) for the new facility over ten years. It houses the largest international cold chain services in Brisbane to meet the fast-growing demand for perishables. The new facility will also support general cargo growth in Queensland, Australia and is set to be ready by early 2023.

George Lawson, Managing Director, DHL Global Forwarding Australia, said, “The expansion of our facilities at Brisbane airport reflects the tremendous growth in exports, especially perishable food. Brisbane’s economy is predicted to surge by 2031, and with this new facility, we are ready to support our customers’ growth.”

Strategically located at Brisbane airport, the facility offers airside access, the first and only freight forwarder to have such access, and is close to the Port of Brisbane.

According to the Green Building Council of Australia, the new facility has a five-green star rating, featuring solar panels, reusable batteries to power most of the warehouse operations, rainwater harvesting and EV charging stations. Plans are also in the works to introduce carbon offsetting and insetting for a carbon-neutral supply chain for customers.

“A lot of thought went into the design of the new operation. As a result, it will assist our customers in trading efficiently. It is also a sustainable facility to help our customers achieve a greener supply chain,” Lawson added.

The facility is also designed to support employees. Lachlan Elliot, Station Manager – Queensland, DHL Global Forwarding Australia, said, “We want this new facility to be a great place to work for our people. Interactive screens together with a flexible workspace are designed to facilitate virtual and physical collaboration.”
